The addiction continues! Another challenge completed!
No surprise, right! 😄
I really enjoyed working on the placement of the print!
The black and white sheer duster I am wearing with is a self-drafted pattern! Check here to read my blog post about it!
This one took a while to complete! The fabric is a quilted knit with gold thread. I purchased it from Joann's at the beginning of the year, but had no idea what I would make. Then I found a 2 yard remnant at Vogue Fabrics. It's a brown knit with...you guessed it - gold thread! Then, boom! The idea hit me! A Long Bomber Jacket - with a gold satin lining from from my stash! My only hack was to use a shorter zipper than the pattern suggested. It took longer than usual because my sewing machine had to be repaired and I was just not willing to trust my back up machines to complete the top-stitching...knit and satin...oh my!
Sew, I waited until my machine was repaired, but by then I was involved in other projects...one being my Online Sewing Classes! There is always time to register for stand alone classes or my membership program!
Sometimes I sew for trips I'm taking! Ok...I sew for most trips I take!
No idea why I that, but I do!
This fabric is a glorious fabric to work with and wear and it travels well! It has great drape and great recovery. I noticed that another sewist added buttons to prevent the front flap from flying open and revealing her "secrets". So I opted to do the same thing. I found the cute heart shaped buttons at Joann's. I'm glad I added the buttons - it made it even more comfy to wear!
All those colors on top of the navy base makes this a fun piece to wear!
